views as a criminal defense lawyer. a comprehensive revision of the federal criminal code should focus on five main points. reducing the number of federal crimes, ensuring that the revised code strikes a proper balance between federal and state law enforcement, clearly defining the appropriate levels of mens rea, establishing uniform rules of construction, and revising the overly harsh punishment system. i'll take those in turn. fir, reducing the number of federal offenses. the list of federal crimes has grown from handful in the crimes act of 1790, to thousands today. this has occurred in part because the country has become more complex and also occurs because everytime there's a national crisis the reaction is to enact new federal crimes. the result is a morass of overlapping statutes. the more than two dozen different -- chapter 47. seven different fraud statutes in chapter 63 and i count 19 different obstruction offenses in chapter 73 of title 18. this proliferation of federal offenses has too main practical consequences from my perspective. first of all the sheer number of crimes

by violent means by the yanukovych government. the violence was a form of self-defense against the attempts of riot police to try to disperse protesters through force from the streets. now the yanukovych government has been toppled, i don't think that violence is a serious issue that threatens ethnic russians in crimea. this is completely a bogus imagined threat that russians are on purpose creating in order to find a pretext to intervene in ukrainian territory to organize and cover up this aggression in crimea and further in the east. >> i'm going to get some community in. steven just tweeted in . . . and i want to go to you with, this speaking about the ukrainians now, do you think ukrainians have lost out on this narrative? can they control their destiny, or are they just being used as a upon now by self interested parties. >> first of all everybody must know there is no united ukraine. ukraine is two different nations, two different countries, and because of [ inaudible ] policy of [ inaudible ] this country survived until recently, but i always warned and i have many, many publications
